    Do you need so many on the page (page totals 27 image requests)? Maybe you could break the page up into subcategory pages, or only keep a few representative sample images. Do they need to be full-size/weight (total image weight 1.02MB)? Maybe thumbnails linking to the full images (with or without a "gallery" script) would be OK.

    i'm not a fan of the animation that follows the cursor. i would highly recommend using thumbnails if you're only going to have images so you have less scrolling. i also like "lightbox" which is a java script that pops up instead of taking you to another page. a better way would be to describe each image with text and then putting a thumbnail right beside it. also it's heavy on advertisements which seems a bit unprofessional especially with the adsense that follows you down as you scroll down the page.

    I think thumbs would work out as well. Check out these for the facebox

    Also not a big fan about the stuff following the mouser. Also maybe consider moving your ads beside your images so you can shrink the page height? Just my 2 cents.
